Got an offer from a middle market consulting firm and one from KPMG in their Transformation Delivery group. Middle market pays more. (Both associate roles) which one should I take?

Can’t speak to middle market, but if you have aspirations to end up at a prestigious consulting firm, PE group, etc take the KPMG offer. It’s difficult to break out of lesser tiers


Decide on long-term progression if salary is similar. If it's drastically higher take the offer and then reevaluate in a year or two. Kpmg will always be hiring


Take higher pay


What kind of work is the middle market firm?

Technology enablement.

How much more?

Depending on how much is your base and experience, 10k is barely a dent.


For just 10k less, take KPMG.. can jump to other firms (B4, T2) at a higher salary in a year

Watch newbie looking for help! I just received a holiday bonus of just over $5,000 in Macy’s credit that I’d like to use on a first watch (although I could use the credit in a few other places).
